    I actually started laughing when our boss called us into the room and told us a woman who worked with us previously had died. I didn't care for this woman, but the real reason I started laughing was because I knew how bad it would be if I started laughing. I've done that a few times in my life - very maddening . The dead woman named the area where my friends and I sat as the "Boystown" section of the office.

    I looked at my buddy and he starts laughing too.

    On the way out, I'm still kind of laughing with my hand over my face. The boss came up to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, "we'll get through this". He thought I was crying.

    LOL

    I do that way too many times. I have the urge to laugh at the most inappropriate times, especially when someone asks me if I'm lying and I'm not. "Are you lying?" "LOL no!" "Goddammit, you're such a liar."

    In all seriousness I saw a shooting star in the same manner a couple weeks ago. I'd never seen a meteorite be that low, bright, and long ever. I was with a couple other people are we were all in disbelief. Pretty rad stuff. Probably never see that again.

    yeah it pisses me off. i get mad at myself but can't stop.

    another self-sabotage thing I do is when speaking in front of a group at work or a church is think to myself while I'm speaking, "man this would be a really bad time to say "f***".

    Ha! I did something like that.

    I was presenting a new product to our sales force and executives in a large auditorium. The stage was uneven for some stupid reason.

    So as I'm walking during my presentation, I tripped slightly and said "****." Of course, being miked-up everyone heard. I froze and immediately, instinctively, said "oh no, did I just say ****?" Everyone cracked up, and I turned beet red. Sales reps kept telling that story for years.

    Our usual every weekend before going out was a poolhall outside springfield mass called Mr B.s billiards.

    It was not funny really, however serious business was at hand and some of the chaps were relying on good old ragus fierce sworn testimony to sway the jurors. For the first time I and they were completly innocent all I had to do was tell the truth about the time we arrived.

    The prosecutor knew us well and hated us all immensely. I got myself all worked up to just answer his question as fast and as simple as possible. I had rehearsed it a million times.

    Anyhow all eyes were on me. My friends looking on as the question was asked. And exactly what time did you and your girlfriend arrive at Mr Pees. (Not B's.)

    An image flashed into my head of me and my girlfriend visiting some kinky golden shower sex club and I did the clear my throat spontaneous laugh thing. It got worse as I tried to keep from laughing and watching my friends holy God wtf is he doing look. I caught my friend Chris mouth to his mother **** it its all over now, then it was just lawyers screaming for a recess.

    Excellent and perfectly rational response given the miscue
